The First Herb Plants of the Season!
Well, these new herbal kids are from Kathleen Gips' lovely Village Herb Shop in Chagrin Falls, Ohio. These are all from Mulberry Creek Herb Farm out in Huron, Ohio. I got several scented geraniums, a couple of rues, a couple of thymes, some 'lemon gem' marigolds and several lavenders. I'll show you where I'm going to plant them in the garden later. My herbal companion, Bonnie and I had a fun day having a tea experience and shopping at Kathleen's. Two of our favorite things to do.
I have a lot of space (sort of) with the garlic chives out of the herb garden. I found three dead lavender plants while I was taking out the garlic chives! So I have lots to talk about and will do it in upcoming posts. Just remind me if there is a subject that I forgot to writing about! Getting old and forgetful! I forgot which herb is most helpful! Is that ginko? Going to work on the garden before it storms. I just yawned. I got my walk in early which is a good thing but sometimes I need that extra sleep! Forgot to mention that I've added a new little feature on the right hand column showing you the progress of my lemon verbena that's coming back from the ground. I smelled its little leaves yesterday and it just has the most wonderful lemon smell. Hope you are having a great day. Talk to you later.
